Apollo EVA X-ray Glove Side view
Original 14 x 17 X-ray photograph of an Apollo EVA glove, showing the glove from a side view angle. In fine condition. This X-ray has been authenticated by Bill Ayrey. Early in the Apollo program at ILC Industries it was found that basting pins were occasionally left in the layers of material as they were sewn together, which could pose serious problems for the pressurized suits. X-rays were therefore required to verify that no unexpected metals were left behind.
